I do not understand why we are making up a snow for Thursday Feb 13, 2014 when we have 13 built in snow days. There has been 13 BUILT IN snow days for as many years has I can remember. you can check this for yourself. Go to www.Greenek12.org then click on employee information on the side. Then go to the bottom of the page click on Classified Employee handbook. Go to page 29 it says 13 built in snow days.

Yeah, education isn't valued around here. What do they need to go to school for anyway?

They just get indoctrinated into the Liberal New World Order at school anyway these days and they get taught that Gay is Ok and abortion is 'cool' and free sex is the way it ought to be.

Maybe it is good for them to miss a few days

So why is it that is says 13 but they only got 9? What happened to other four days? I know some parents have made appointments for their kids because they were to be out. How can you give a make up day with not much notice?

The snow make up days have been listed on the calendar since the beginning of school. There is another one the last week of March.

Since: Jan 14

This is part of an e- mail I received

As you know, GCS’s “stockpiles” 13 additional days of student instructional time by using 7 hours each day for instruction rather than the state-mandated minimum of 6 ½ hours.

From the 13 stockpiled days, GCS’s uses 5 days for state approved professional learning, leaving 8 snow days. We have had several different policies in the past, some have required making up days after snow day #3 or snow day #5. However, we did not designate that requirement in the 2013-14 calendar

Yes I wondered the same thing. I asked a couple of teachers how many snow days were left and their answer didn't include 5 days being used for something else. I think it was last year we had a few snow days left over...What do they do about that? The kids didn't get those days off, so did they go the extra days to school??

They quietly turned 3 days into staff development days. This year they turned 4 into staff development days even though we go extra every day to have 13.
